Arista Nashville singer songwriter Ryan Hurd has garnered more than 382 million career streams worldwide and caught the attention of entertainment tastemakers including Esquire, GQ, Maxim, American Songwriter, Billboard, People, NBC’s “TODAY” and more. With co-pen credits on some of country music’s biggest hits by Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan, the Kalamazoo native continues his hit-producing path with “Chasing After You,” which follows his 2020 EOM EP featuring “Every Other Memory,” dubbed one of the “Best Songs of April 2020” by TIME. His 2019 Gold-certified Top 20 song “To A T,” went #1 at SiriusXM The Highway’s Hot 30 Countdown.
Maren’s triple-Platinum, Grammy-nominated single “The Bones”—from her massively acclaimed, record shattering 2019 album GIRL—dominated 2020, topping the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 19 consecutive weeks and becoming the first solo female multi-week #1 at country radio since 2012. Most recently, she performed the track with John Mayer at the 2021 Grammys.
After a 2019 CMA Awards Album of the Year win for GIRL, Maren won Female Vocalist of the Year, Single of the Year and Song of the Year at the 2020 CMA Awards, plus Female Artist of the Year and Music Event of the Year at the 2020 ACM Awards. Maren leads this year’s ACM Awards nominations, tied for most with six.
The Grammy-winning artist kicked off 2021 with a performance of her protest song in support of Black Lives Matter “Better Than We Found It” on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” as well as a performance of her collaboration with Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist JP Saxe “Line By Line” on “The Late Late Show with James Corden.”
